. now to libya. the new government firing the security chiefs pour benghazi today in the wake of last week's attacks on the u.s. consulate there that killed ambassador chris stevens and they're other americans. they have two different versions of that attack. >> the way these perpetrators acted and moved, this leaves us with no doubt that this was preplanned. >> what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. >> we're live from benghazi, libya. an fbi investigation now under way there. why the two versions? what are you hearing on that? >> reporter: well, they're talking about two different parts of process. on the libyan side of things, they look it from the point of the attack very deliberately in the ways the weapons were used and ammunitions were used. they were evacuated to a safehouse, and the armed gunman proceeded to follow the americans to that safehouse and continue attacking that second location, which was at a very undisclosed area, if you will, away from the embassy or the consulate. the americans
obama wasn't deeply saddened about the loss of four american lives in libya, that he was speaking about policy in the region and not about the loss of lives? >> whether he was speaking about bumps in the road, he was talking about developments in the middle east and that includes the assassination and includes the muslim brother rood president of egypt. there are extraordinary events going on in the middle east, and considering those events has bumps ntd road shows a person with a very different perspective about world affairs than the perspective i have. >> jonathan, you believe in the president's hearts he was referring to the deaths of the americans serving in the front lines as diplomats as a bump in the road? that's what he was saying, jonathan? >> to colony of that bumps in the road is very, very difficult for the president to do. i think mitt romney is absolutely appropriate to call him out on it. >> chris, let me get your response to that. >> well, i mean, listen, it's pretty desperate and not surprising. when you're the romney campaign and basically behind in every key battlegr
the white house now about several things. libya, for instance, but they're getting more aggressive with every little thing that the president says these days because they need to score political points because they haven't scored many at all lately. >> is that an effective strategy? with the attacks in libya, even within the party, within his own party it was seen as a cheap way to score points. to your point about wanting the media to push the president harder, people are still waiting for governor romney to say what loopholes he would focus on if he's president. we're looking for a more specific budget from him. i mean, it took this long to get the tax returns. so wanting the other guy to be pushed by the media while you're still not answering questions regarding major policy issues from foreign to domestic, is that a smart strategy with so little time in reality left here? >> it's not effective on its own, but they do have to get more aggressive. one of the other things they'll do is put out mitt romney and paul ryan in more events in swing states. as you mentioned, he has a big

out swinging and say something rash that makes him look ridiculous like it did after the libya crisis. he has to be careful to make sure he still looks presidential and doesn't look like some sort of barracuda nipping at obama's heels. there's a delicate balance here, and if mitt romney and his advisers are treating this as the make-or-break moment, that could invite mistakes in my opinion. >> steve, what does camp romney need to be doing in terms of the debate next wednesday? >> well, this idea fact-checking obama is a bad idea. i think continues to make a case that the majority of the american people have demonstrated two years ago they agree with, you've conquered that hill. romney needs to look like a credible, transparent, sincere leader with a plan, and a plan that is specific and simple to understand and how benchmarks like you give investors at bain capital. he wouldn't walk into a room and say, hey, give me your money to buy this company. we'll make it all work here in the black in the next two years. offer specifics and offer benchmarks that can hold you accountable by the a
